NEC Solutions (America), Inc.

and leading High End Systems, Inc. have collaborated to provide the industry's first turnkey video and lighting system packages for touring concert, large venue, nightclub, and retail applications. The new entertainment and tour packages will be initially demonstrated in America during regular exhibit hours at the High End Systems booth (#200) at LDI 2002, the Entertainment Design and Technology show, Oct. 18-20, 2002 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Referred to as "media in motion," High End's Catalyst system offers new tools allowing for the integration of video and lighting for high-impact entertainment. The system allows users to load video or images, then scale, rotate, zoom, edit, morph, color mix, overlay, or blend them for unique lighting effects, including the projection of images in three-dimensional space.

"We are pleased to collaborate with High End Systems by providing advanced projection and plasma display technology and integration support," says Greg Patrick, director of Strategic OEM/Integrator Partners for NEC Solutions America, Visual Systems Division. "The demonstrations at LDI will give attendees a first-hand look at what is possible when the finest in lighting and visual display technologies are streamlined into the industry's first seamlessly controlled turnkey solution."

"These packages from NEC enable High End Systems dealers to deliver complete solutions to their clients," says Bobby Hale, Catalyst product manager for High End Systems. "The Catalyst System bundled with NEC PlasmaSync® displays is ideal for communicating messages in retail environments and for offering dynamic visual textures in clubs and entertainment venues. In addition, NEC's projectors are perfect for creating digital aerial effects for tours and nightclubs."

NEC's Nighthawk™ Series high light output projectors, famous for their flexible designs and high reliability, offer the right combination of high brightness, resolution, and color uniformity for use in touring concert and large venue applications. NEC's flexible GT Series installation projectors and sleek, eye-catching PlasmaSync® plasma displays capture attention and entertain in nightclub and retail environments.

The new Catalyst packages are available now through High End Systems dealers.
